Respect for Human Rights
As a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and a company that puts sustainability at the core of our business growth, Salcon recognizes that commercial and social impact are inextricably linked. Salcon has signed the pledge to uphold the UNGC’s 10 principles on human rights, labour standards, environment and anti-corruption. In particular, Salcon is committed to living up to the Compact’s Human Rights principles below:
Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights
Principle 2: Businesses should make sure they are not complicit in human rights abuses
We uphold the rights of our stakeholders as employees, suppliers, sub-contractors, authority, clients, media, NGOs, community as well as public and support their rights to economic, cultural and social rights as well as freedom of expression.
To this end, we have in place a whistleblower and grievance mechanism at Group level to ensure source protection to enable our stakeholders to report any wrongdoing through various of channels. Any breaches of human rights will be taken immediate action.
Salcon also collaborates with Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (SUHAKAM) to conduct Human Rights awareness talk to create awareness and to introduce the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights as well as its application in business to our employees.
